chance to reclaim the momentum from president obama. both candidates will be squaring off against debate stand-ins, 2004 presidential candidate john kerry will stand in in the role of mitt romney and ohio senator rob portman will star as president obama. he also did it in john mccain's 2008 campaign. ahead of next week's debates, both sides have been lowering expectations. >> the president is, obviously, a very eloquent, gifted speaker. he'll do just fine. >> mitt romney has an advantage because he's been through 20 debates in the primaries oefrt the last year. >> barack obama is a very effective debater. >> we know governor romney is practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he's putting into the debates. >> i'm joined by the president of progress and former obama white house adviser and also with us is robert trainum. nera, you helped with hillary clinton's debate preps and you worked robert with with rick santorum and president bush. let's get to the heart of it, robert. both sides lowering expectations, but realistically how important is this
romney. but actually it's a very dynamic pool of voters. the big question for both the romney and obama campaigns is what does that electorate look like when they come out to vote. in the end, it doesn't matter how many support mitt romney and support barack obama. the only thing that ends up mattering is how many people come out successfully manage to cast a vote support mitt romney and support barack obama. jest an enormous amount of energy is turning out people who have decided they prefer one or the other but might not make their way to the polls. >> 36 days until the election. i did want to show these numbers from your piece. 43% of are watching very closely. that's for the decided. for the undecided and the people who may or may not go to the polls, who aren't those people who every election make their way to the polling place, do we have a good take on what get them there? is it an issue? is it a phone call? what motivates them in the end? >> so there is evidence on one of the most effective way to move people to the polls. to some degree it's human contact. having somebody knock

campaign. president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, both favor expanding charter schools, support standardized tests and want more accountability from teachers and principals. but the two men have significant disagreements. >> i think some of the main differences between governor romney and president obama when it comes to education come in the area of school choice. governor romney sees a really robust rule for school choice and school improvement whereas president obama like a lot of democrats has been skeptical of vouchers. >> reporter: romney supports taking federal dollars for educating special needs and low income families, known as title i funds and giving them directly to parents in the form of vouchers. although romney avoids using that word. >> for the first time in history federal education funds will be linked to the student so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school of their choice. >> reporter: the obama administration is staunchly opposed. why not expand vouchers? why not give parents more choices? >> the goal can't be to remove on
, 47% disclosure they didn't want to disclose. let's listen. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. >> who measures compassion by how many people are on welfare? who is the story man they're trying to argue with? >> they are trying to make a caricature out of president obama calling him the food stamp president. this reminds me of the story where the woman comes home, finds her husband in bed with his best friend and he says, honey, it's not as bad as it looks. you have the 47 -- >> is that a joke or true life story? >> i'm sure it's happened once or twice. you have the 47% remark with romney speaking and other people have said it, not just me, with complete conviction and passion, telling people what he really thinks. and then you have this guy sitting in front of a camera, reading a script. you have to ask, okay, do th
trail as he was yesterday in virginia. what a quinky dink. romney and obama both in ohio on the same day and both in virginia this week on the same day. do you think they're coordinating their schedules? maybe they ought to ride on the same bus. make things a lot easier, wouldn't it? we've got lots and lots to talk about here on the "full court press" today and lots you'll want to call about at 1-866-55-press. that is our toll free number. peter ogborn and dan henning as always. team press here. >> happy friday. >> with cyprian bowlding on the cameras. >> nice to see you. >> bill: everything good. "saturday night live" had a lot of fun last night. they did a thursday special. they do this sometimes during presidential elections. and they've got this new guy who plays president obama. >> i like him. >> bill: jay pharaoh. he was touting his jobs record. he said who says i didn't create jobs. i created a lot of jobs. he was touting his jobs record. one woman in the audience told him that she's got a v
obama urged both sides to get it together. after two days at the table and all the pressure from the outside, the league and the res said though reached a deal to last eight years. pensions? you bet. now the details from rick leventhal. this worked out pretty good. >>guest: it did. the commissioner says this deal would have gotten done this week anyway with or without the call that changed the outcome of monday night football but admits it was a factor to get the two sides to the table and push them to agree. the two sides met for 17 hours on tuesday and 15 hours on wednesday agreeing on the eight-year contract, the longest ever for referees with pentagons and retirement benefits spelled out and a new salary structure from last year's average of $149,000 to $173,000 next year and $205,000 a year in 2019. the commission are says this is a deal that had to get done but it doesn't mean there won't be more bad calls ahead. >> sports are not perfect. life is not perfect. that is why we love sports. you always want did try to avoid the controversial plays particularly at the end of a g
to the campaign trail here for a moment, both president obama and mitt romney this week pointed out how helpful an endorsement from former president clinton can be. in fact, politico has called it the clinton crutch. how much will president obama be relaying on the former president to sell his economic plan, specifically? >> sure. well, look, president obama is a fantastic advocate for president obama. he's got a unique perspective that he brings to this campaign. having been through some of the challenges with the economy that the president faces today during the 1990s, and having implemented very similar proposals in terms of investing in education and investing in infrastructure, responsibly bringing down the debt, so his is a voice that we think is a very powerful voice in helping to tell the president's story. we think he's going to be a great advocate for us. we're excited he's giving us that time and we're excited to have him out advocating for the president on the trail. >> brent, hypothetically, let's say the president is re-elected. what's his first order of business next year, is it
. >>> right now on "andrea mitchell reports" countdown to denver. president obama and mitt romney prepare for their first debate. both sides trying to lower expectations. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> flashpoint libya, the white house on the defensive after reports of both security and intelligence nurse in benghazi before that terror attack. >> standing up, sitting down. >> which ever one you like. >> there you go. >> do whatever they tell us. >> the white house line is you heard the president say, osama bin laden is dead, al qaeda is done, everything is fine in the middle east. this, obviously, contradicts -- ther series of events contradicts that campaign slogan. so, the fact is, that this was clearly an act of terror committed by people who were pretty well trained jihadists. >> more carnage in afghanistan. the taliban
with at your home? barack obama favored strongly on both of those questions, at least. >> yeah. >> what's your take away? >> we get a little bit of flack for people who says who cares who you would rather be a ship captain of the storm or dinner about. >> what does it tell you? >> part of a huge poll like the nbc wall street journal poll, tons of questions, these are two or three questions as part of that, but two, i think it gets to the sort of, particularly who would you like to have dinner with, the likability issue and i do think likability does matter. we saw in the poll, we asked who do you think is more likable and friendly, more standard issue poll question, and 61% of the people said barack obama, 29% said mitt romney. what mitt romney has to hope is, that people put aside that who do i like more question and what the undecideds are thinking when they go in the polling places, who do i think can get the job done. who cares if i like them or don't like them, who is the resume, talking about the things to get the job done. that's what romney has to hope voters are thinking about. >> and
or justice antonin scalia who are both in their mid-70s, if they retired, then president obama could replace a conservative or a right leaning moderate. >> reporter: here's who could make the nominee list if president obama wins a second term. california attorney general harris is getting a lot of buzz. >> the california attorney general has political experience, which is really missing on the court right now. >> reporter: another name circulating is ja kwlen wen. if she's nominated, the california-based federal appeals judge would make history as the court's first asian-american justice. but that's no guarantee. and for example if ruth bader ginsburg is the only justice to retire, the liberal side of the court would not get any bigger. just a little younger. >> and as you know, there's been a lot of speculation about whom romney might nominate. >> right. among them paul clement is one name we've heard. dia diane sikes and kav gnaw, a judge here in d.c. >> love to speculate. >> fantastic. >> all the names we've never heard of. >> happens a lot. i know. >>> we'll have a quick check of some of
. obama's skin again and again and again. it looked like to some degree there in south carolina both hillary clinton and bill clinton were sort of -- were sort of going after him at the same time, trying to fluster him when he got to this debate. he never went there. and i think that's telling for this debate upcoming. all these attempts to try to fluster him, you know, do you remember suzanne, the talk about ronald reagan in that debate? >> right. >> do you recall that? >> that's right. >> all this talk about ronald reagan and whether obama had sort of invoked the name of ronald reagan because so many democrats didn't like him or whatever. well senator obama then took the punches, explained what he said about reagan and took it back to her, keeping the anger under control, finding balance and pushing back hard just not too hard. >> it was interesting too as well you could ask the most dry mundane question, dealing with the economy. they would go back to the talking points in the attacks. it was clear they were trying to score points. fireworks. a "game change"er if you will. i want
are stepping up pressure now on the obama administration, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle we should point out including john kerry. they want to reveal all the details of the deadly libyan attack. after two weeks of continuous clanking stories on this, arizona senator john mccain says it is disgraceful that the white house blamedded attack initially on quote, spontaneous protests. here he is. >> the thing that is disturbing about this naivete, the fundamental ignorance of warfare. look, this was an attack on its face. heavy weapons, mortars, a, well-synchronized direct fire and indirect fire attack. the thing that is really scary about it is, that the people in the region believe the united states is weak and withdrawing. martha: john bolton joins me now, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. fox news contributor. is he right? >> absolutely. look, i think there are only two explanations for the administration's performance. one they're engaged in a cover-up because it is politically inconvenient to find terrorism not defeated as the president has said. the other is that the president's
-language romney ads in nine states. it's another attempt to soften romney's image. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> he's sticking up for president obama. that's kind of cool, isn't it? romney hopes this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> it is brutal. the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not helping with swing voters. it's also hurting romney with his base. "the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's comments didn't sit well with myers. "the last thing, where he was going on about the 47% who are dependent on the government is hard to swallow. i think i'm part of the 47% he's talking about. but i don't want to be dependent on the government." that's a pretty good indication of wher
of opinions about both men and help undecided voters make up their minds. >> gregg: obama campaign suggests that romney wins the debate by appearing on the stage. is that true? >> there is some truth to that. they are belittling romney by that comment saying that barack obama is the incumbent chief executive. but by standing on the stage, mitt romney will have an opportunity to have his ideas and presentation compared first time, no reporters telling people how it can be interpreted or no analysts or pundits telling them how it should be interpreted. it will give an opportunity for mitt romney, he hopes, romney hopes to call out the president on some of the deceptions of his positions. mitt romney has argued that he does not support abortion with the exception of rape and incest and life of the mother. barack obama campaign has suggested romney shares paul ryan's view that doesn't have exception. he says the auto bailout, so that is romney is looking for and in case of president obama. what he with a really wants to do is make sure this doesn't become a discussion in the last three and a ha
president obama and governor mitt romney face off in denver for their first debate. both candidates are going some final cramming. romney will also address supporters at a denver rally later tonight. >>> california becomes the first state to ban straight to gay therapy for miners. governor jerry brown signed the legislation. the bill's sponsor says conversion therapy is dangerous. a conservative group plans to file a suit. >>> families may have to dig deeper to pay for milk. the new york daily news quotes senator charles schumer as saying milk prices could double if congress does not approve a new farm bill. the senate's passed it, but not the house. a more dire warning coming from the national milk producers federation. milk could hit $6 a gallon. >>> an addictive dance. hundreds of prisoners in the philippines doing their rendition of the gangnam style dance. if you don't know him, you may have been living under a rock. gangnam style is the most liked youtube video ever with 335 million views. guess what? the song is number two. listen to it. on the u.s. charts. stay top of mind w
the presidential election. the race still too close to call. and both mitt romney and barack obama will be virtually invisible today. why, you ask? well, they're hunkering town for wednesday's debate and a chance to deliver that made for tv moment that will have us all talking. after all, debate zingers are an american tradition. >> i'm counting on you. i'm counting on the fact that when the american people focus and push aside all the noise and all the nonsense and they remember the fact that all of us, whatever success we've achieved, we've achieved because we worked together. because we made sure everybody -- >> here you go again. >> i want you to know that also i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> those are the zingers we were talking about. that first obama shot, that was a mistake. but it was a very rousing speech, right? if you want another measure o

. >> and with a very different pitch, governor mitt romney. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> okay, seriously, why not vote now. what else do you need to know? we've had the primaries, endless political ads, direct mail. 24-hour political pundits online and on the airwaves dissecting every little tiny moment of this very long political cycle. what else is there left to be learned? after all, one of the biggest hurdles to voting as we have been telling you every week is access to the polls. so early voting should be an expansion of democracy. but, you know, i still kind of have to wonder, what does it say about the deliberative nature of democracy that many cast votes before the debates and the official closing arguments. i find myself agreeing, but narrowly, with newt gingrich here. let's embrace the essence of the lincoln doug
obama, wchashis dat f years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what d you see as the lessons iraq? >> i tnk the lesf iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa ttr,hey are succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as aconsnc i thought that it was going to be a distractio now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '0and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consume e of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the campaign was consumed with both of the wars. now it's 2012 and we're 40 days out from the election this year and we are not quite as consumed with that issue, but we are st
are at the bases of both of these parties. it looks like the obama camp there is gaining a lot of traction as well. >> it was a 10 point lead in terms of great interest now it's a 4-point lead. this all tracks with the sense that the election is moving in obama's direction, which is why this debate next wednesday, the first presidential debate is so information, because it rile is romney's last, best chance to change the dynamic: people ask me how does very to do it. i think it's very similar people. tens of millions are americans will be watching that debate. after that they have to say, i was for obama, now i think i'm for romney. he if he can achieve that. it doesn't have to be a knockout. people have to have a second thought. i thought i was for the president, and now i'm not. if he will have achieved that that will be a very sec full bee date for him. and that is a tall order. martha: some pry people away that are already decided is a more middable task for mitt romney. you can read this their press releases that the romney camp is working hard to lower the expectations. they are saying pres
